SUBJECT: YouTube — Strengthen Social Security ... Don’t Cut It

Check it out ...




... a brief and entertaining, yet absolutely terrific summary of how strong Social Security really is, how the “banksters” who crashed the economy want to get their grubby hands on the surplus (to fix a deficit caused mainly by their tax cuts, bailouts, etc.), and how little it will take to keep Social Security solvent beyond the 25 years it is already pre-paid (with all workers’ money).


By the way, that video is associated with a new organization, dedicated to preserving Social Security for everyone and to debunking the myths and rumors from those who want to gut it to enrich their own, already fat portfolios: Check out http://www.strengthensocialsecurity.org/, brought to you by labor unions and other progressive organizations, working for Main Street, not Wall Street.


I read about all this in a great new Huff Post article by Robert Borosage, co-director of the Campaign for America’s Future (and former Left Field guest): http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-l-borosage/kick-the-old-and-the-disa_b_654200.html


And don’t fall for the hype from the Right.
